What You Should Know More About Tours in Bali
You have two options: If you want, you can get a visa prior to beginning the travel. Inversely, you can also opt for the Visa on Arrival option. Bali offers Visa on Arrival facility to Indian citizens. Step two includes booking your flight tickets. Book your tickets in advance to get the best price. All the four major airports in India offer flights to Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport These include Chattrapathi Shivaji International Airport (csia.in) in Mumbai, Indira Gandhi International (newdelhiairport.in) in New Delhi, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport in Kolkata and Chennai International Airport in Chennai.
It does not matter which airport you fly from, as you will have to make at least one transfer before arriving in Bali anyway. The Indian airlines do not have flights to Bali, so while booking tickets you will have the following options (from at all four airports in India) – Etihad Airways, Malaysia Airlines, Qantas Airways, Thai Airways and Singapore Air.
You have both the options available to you. If you want, you can get a visa prior to beginning your travel from the nearest Indonesian embassy in India. This is always recommended.

This visa is valid for up to 30 days stay in Indonesia. You can also get it extended for another 30 days. Piece of advice: ensure that your passport is valid for at least another 6 months, and should have enough space for the visa sticker.
Since Bali is located near the equator, it has a very warm, tropical climate throughout the year. This makes it a huge draw for tourists. Average year-round temperature stands at around 26-27°C with a high humidity level of about 85%-90%. Water temperatures are always pleasant.
The Monsoon season in Bali, which stretches from October to March typically, brings daily rain with quiet overcast days. The rain is recorded mostly in between December and February.
Occasional showers can also be expected during the dry season but usually at night or early morning. Throughout June to August, you will experience a refreshing cool breeze all day long. The central mountain area is typically cooler than the lower coastal areas mainly especially at night.
The weather in Bali remains more or less pleasant throughout the year, the best time to visit Bali depends mainly on the specific weather and on high and low season. High season is during the months of July and August, during Easter Holidays, Late December and early January due to Christmas and New Year when party lovers from all over the world assemble here. These are the busiest times in Bali. However, for many other reasons, a lot of people prefer and say that best time to come to Bali is between April, May, June and September. That is, just before and just after high season.
The weather then is still dry, the level of humidity is slightly less, and economically speaking room prices and villa rentals can be a lot cheaper than during what you will find in the high season. Incidentally, these months are also the best time to indulge in water sports activities in Bali. Waters are clear and since the place is low on crowd, you will get to avail the best deals.
